So Christmas has come and it was a rather good one. Not just because of the gifts, though those were pretty awesome this year, but because we got to see friends, family, and enjoy good food.
We went to my mom’s on Christmas Eve and had dinner with her, and found out she’s basically been hoarding craft supplies from a previous sale at her work for Christmas gifts. Mattie got a $30 gift card, and I got yarn, and a box of miscellaneous craft – related items.
Sunday morning Mattie and I did our gift exchange. He seemed to be pretty happy with what I got him, and he gave me about a zillion books. Knitting, crochet, and coloring.
Later on his dad and brother came over and we sat down to a nice dinner (giant hunk of cow + baked potato + broccoli + cider & pumpkin cheesecake for dessert. We did our gift exchange after dinner and everyone seemed to be happy with what they got. Me? I got an Amazon gift card from Geoff, and his dad got me a baritone ukulele + padded gig bag + method book. Squeeee!
So now it’s time for pictures!
Two of the coloring books above I bought for myself but the rest were all from Mattie.
And the best gift of all! I look a mess, but isn’t it pretty?
Not pictured are bobbins for my most recent sewing machine, double pointed knitting needles, and colored pencils. You can kinda see the clip on tuner on the headstock of the uke in the above photo.
One of my gifts, another set of DPNs, never arrived, so Mattie will be contacting Amazon about them sometime today.
I ordered some stuff already with the gift card I received, including a “world’s okayest ukulele player” t-shirt, two more Crochet Lite hooks, a knitting book, a new oven thermometer, a ball of yarn, and a few other items.
Anyway, I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! New Years is up next!
